Community hubs are being created with the help of local churches to support the most vulnerable with food and medicines.

In Poole and Bournemouth, Faithworks Wessex are helping churches to form a cluster or linked group in each ward or locality that might help their communities in this unprecedented crisis, supporting local good neighbour schemes and foodbanks.

Local churches in each area will seek to ensure that their local foodbank has all the food and healthy volunteers that it needs. Many foodbanks are desperate for supplies and financial support at the moment.

The hubs are also helping with bereavement support – that is, assisting funeral directors to coroners, ministers to celebrants, crematorium staff to Registrars as well as supporting the bereaved, as restrictions and changes to funeral services during this period take place.
